There is a qualitative change in the sound between "Ramble On Rose" and "Me And My Uncle"; the first part of the show is very crisp and clear, while the latter part is of higher gen, with more bass. This is consistent with the description in Taper's Compendium of circulating copies of this show.

There are some mix problems in "Promised Land", and a bit of distortion in a few places, particularly in "Deal". There is a brief dropout at 2:39 in "Greatest Story". There is a dropout @ 11:46 in "Here Comes Sunshine".

Subject: My favorite version of this show
Some great moments, particularly a great China Rider & Eyes. Not the greatest show ever, but good.

Subject: 'Mind Left Body Jam' (is not listed)
Phil, Keith and Bob's splendid chord transition, 'Mind Left Body Jam' played as 'China Cat Sunflower' melds into 'I know You Rider' is not mentioned. They only played this special interim piece during this time span of maybe a year or so and should be noted. Respecting my attention to this musical tablature is from the unlearned pen of a landlubber that just don't know them music jargons much none. Enjoy!
